“One step away from being homeless, you and I”~priest

Met a wonderful man and his dog when my employer sent me to buy mulch.  Marian and Rusty, I believe to be their names.  Marian is a veteran.  He came from California with a truck, trailor, wife and dog.  He now has a dog.
I think some of the most wonderful people in the world are homeless. Most love to talk. Many are more sane than I. Marian lives in a tent, up the hill with his dog.
I enjoyed chatting with Marian.  Rusty enjoyed protecting his master.  He was excited to receive a Bible and change for a cup of coffee.  He has plenty of time to read.
He was very appreciative of my Bible gift and said, “I’ll see you, again.”
It brings the thought to mind that we each are but one step away from being homeless.  A poorly thought out action here.  A poorly thought out response there.
Consider Job.  Homeless and did neither….

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. God is love. There are people like Marian all around us and
    yet we ignore them as if they did not exsist. Most would even be grateful for a smile with that stare we give them.
    God’s word tells us to minister to the poor and needy, the
    lonely etc. May God lead us to minister in His name. Share
    what we have and especially God’s love.
